Home hero Robert Lambert is revved up for World Under-21 final opening round at King’s Lynn
Robert Lambert will be hoping his knowledge of the Saddlebow Road shale can prove the difference when he begins his bid to win the World Under-21 final.
The King's Lynn Stars rider, 18, will be the home hero when the first of the three-round series is held at the Norfolk track tonight. Foulsham-based Lambert is one of three permanent wildcards in the 16-man battle for glory after falling just short in the qualification process. And the Stars' favourite son is determined to prove why he was handed a lifeline come tapes up at Lynn.
Lambert said: 'It's great to be on my home track at King's Lynn in the first round, it's somewhere I know well so I hope I can make the most of it.
'It's going to be tough and anything can happen on the day, but I'd like to think I can use my knowledge around there to have a good meeting and get off to a good start.
'Hopefully the crowd can give me plenty of support and I can make the most of it by putting in a good performance.'
